Inclusion is claimed to be a top priority for organizations of all sizes the world over, but the resistance to changing the status quo is holding organizations back from doing the right thing. True inclusion should be operationalized, informing how people are hired, how products are built and marketed, how corporate donations are distributed and how opportunities are opened up to underrepresented groups at every level of an organization. Communication can - and should - underscore all these efforts, bringing everyone along on the journey to inclusion.
As communicators, we put words in the mouths of leaders, of brands and of public sector entities. We need to make sure we're using the right words that don't alienate or exclude some of the very people we are trying to impact.
In this session, I will use real-life examples and analogies to illustrate the power of the words we use to build trust and maintain reputation. You will learn how to be an ally, how to acknowledge and use your privilege for good and how to unlearn bias out loud.
